    My mother-in-law needs to head into Denton on Monday morning. Is Highway 380 open from the Dallas North Tollway to IH-35? Or is there flooding? I want to make sure that she doesn't run into any problems on the road.

    Kiev

    I was curious to see if anyone had been following the unfolding story out of Kiev. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/12/08/kiev-protesters-lenin-statue_n_4408550.html I find it to be fascinating. It reminds me of a modern day Les Miserables, barricade and all. Yesterday, 7 monks stood...

    Did Anyone Think It Was Ironic That

    On WFAA last night, they went straight from a story about budget cuts in our schools to a story about an historic bell tower in Tarrant County?
